scorsese: I think Aviator is really underrated. And I try to watch last Temptation of Christ every two years or so. The Departed moves at such a breakneck speed, it's still sort of a wonder to behold. Raging Bull gets more interesting and intense each time I see it, like Citizen Kane. A wee bit too long, but otherwise virtually flawless. Every technical department knocks it out of the park, and obviously it's DeNiro's finest hour. If Martin had only made that, he'd still be counted one of the greats.

But really, isn't film is just literature for people too lazy to read?

YES. but i began to read when i was 3 and ended after a BA in english plus 5 years of grad school in literature. i have earned the fucking right not to see another printed page ever again. however i still do, on occasion. but for everyday characters and stories, i think TV takes the cake these days. just finished season 1 of house of cards, and WOW.

"Guru, The Mad Monk" most certainly is an acquired taste, to say the very least, but comes recommended to those interested in low-budget horror/exploitation cinema.

So, I read this yesterday, and went to check it, and Netflix has it! Should I…? The thing predicts I'll give 3 stars… The reviews other people have given are quite scathing… which means I probably should take a look ha ha ha.

well, sure, everything is always something else, no? but the duke of gloucester doesn't eat the lady anne's pussy while she was on the phone with her dad for father's day though.

so far, this is way better than the ever-dragging sons of anarchy take on hamlet.

If you bear in mind that "Guru..." is a low-budget exploitation film (with all that goes with it), and you keep an open mind (as I did) re its expectations, I reckon its worth a watch

Just saw Under The Skin.... I want to say I love it but I don't think I really do. It was an amazing but frustrating experience, and I'm not entirely sure on where to draw the line between what the director was and wasn't aiming for, and what makes a viewing experience rewarding.

Totally worth seeing, but almost ambiguous to the point of fault.

An entry into the "Witchfinder General"/"Mark Of The Devil" stakes by everyone's favourite Staten Island-based director, and it sure is a "unique" item indeed. This one concerns Father Guru (Neil Flanagan) - who actually is really a bishop, not a monk! - whose day-to-day activities involves rounding up various unfortunates, absolving them of their supposed "sins" (one gets absolved for the "sin" of peeping!), then performs various unpleasantries on them in the name of Christ. He's aided and abetted in all this by his right-hand foil Olga (Jacqueline Webb), who provides "glamour" and sleaze in equal measure, and Igor (Jack Spencer), a leprous hunchback, who seems to be loyal to Father Guru. Various victims come and go, and Father Guru (a dead ringer at times for UK actor Rodney Bewes) chews the scenery about sin, redemption and teaching them damn villagers a thing or two about the Good Lord. Ultimately, the victims wreak their revenge on the good Guru, and he ends up meeting a truly ridiculous demise at the hands of Igor. At this point the film crashes to a sudden halt and ends.

This film bears many of the hallmarks of an Andy Milligan effort - choppy, sometimes incoherent editing, some rather wobbly camera work, a script (put together by Milligan himself) full of ripe and ludicrous emoting and dialogue, and a large amount of random stock library music. The violence/gore scenes are truly inept - I can't believe that Milligan spent more than $10 on the special effects work - and the performances (by a group of unknowns, as per usual) range from the bored/confused to the rather deranged. At 57 minutes, the film oddly enough feels about the right length; any longer, and it really would have begun to drag out considerably.

You'd think that, going by the above, "Guru...." is a laughable, incompetent, grade-Z exploitation mess that deserves to be forgotten about, and indeed, 98% of film fans would agree with you. But Milligan's work has always held a fascination for me - his themes of repression, desire, conflict and ever-present violence run throughout his films, and whilst I'm never going to buy into the (utterly ridiculous) claims that Milligan was some type of zero-budget "auteur", he has shown thematic consistency throughout his career. In addition, Milligan's homosexuality (which he chose not to be open about, and he was also a frequenter of the NYC S&M scene) feeds into his work too - the sense of repressed guilt is present in this at times, and whilst he's no George Kuchar (and indeed, who is?), the gay angle of his film-making should be acknowledged. Tragically, Milligan passed away from AIDS in 1991, and spent the last couple of years of his life in considerable ill-health and poverty.

I've waited nearly 20 years to see "Guru, The Mad Monk", and was not disappointed. Milligan's films were nigh-on impossible to find in the UK for many, many years - the only one being distributed (by video) being "The Ghastly Ones" (under the re-titling of "Blood Rites") in the early 1980's, which itself ended up being clobbered under the Obscene Publications Act (for gore scenes reasons). It was only with the BFI Flipside DVD release of "The Body Beneath" a couple of years ago, that Milligan's work finally was available in general to a UK audience.

"Guru, The Mad Monk" most certainly is an acquired taste, to say the very least, but comes recommended to those interested in low-budget horror/exploitation cinema.

Never heard of that. Definitely something I'll check out.

I am usually not a cinema person, i need breaks while watching a movie. even though this was so long, it was kinda okay and I only stepped out during the break between part 1 and 2 even though there is a lot going on in the movie and it wasn't very easy for me to process.
I feel like there are some scenes in the movies that could have been cut out, that don't really make sense/contribute to the story. but maybe they do in the 5 hour version? i don't know.
I really loved both stacy martins' and charlotte gainsbourg's performance. the latter i love in everything anyway, so..
there is something in the second part that made me feel uncomfortable and it's one of the parts I think could have been left out (at least in the 4 hour version). it has something to do with LvT justifying things... not sure if I want to talk about that. Give me some time to think about it.
other than LvT being annoying in this one moment, i really liked the movie and it made me very sad at times and think a lot but it has also very good humor in it which is good cause otherwise this movie would have destroyed me, i think.
will probably watch it again very soon. hopefully i can get my hands on the 5 hour version!

i am eagerly awaiting the blu-ray release here. not sure when it will be but i'm curious.

i find charlotte gainsbourg to be such an odd creature, he dad's face on her mom's body, she's not conventionally pretty but i find her interesting. i've only seen her in only one movie so far-- a children's movie (science of sleep) so i wonder what she'll be like here.

lars "von" trier (he added the von, you know) is a bit of a sadistic fucker who loves to torment his audience by tormenting his characters (but i like him anyway). so i don't know what he's up to-- but if dancer in the dark or dogville are any indication…. poor charlotte!

anyway, yeah, thanks for avoiding spoilers. but still… oh, i'm so curious.

ps-- i'm watching his "antichrist" in the coming days. i had lost touch with his work a bit recently and decided to catch up.
